Metallica frontman James Hetfield has filed for divorce from his wife, whom he’s been married to for 25 years.

The musician met his wife Francesca in 1992 and they tied the knot in 1997.

They now share two daughters – Cali, 24, and Marcella, 20 – as well as son, 22-year-old Castor.

However, the rocker, 59, supposedly actually filed for divorce from Francesca earlier this year, but the news has only just been reported.

According to TMZ, James filed the legal documents against Francesca in Colorado months ago, and their romance is no more.

But, the former couple are still believed to be in touch and on good terms as they have a family.

Film costume designer Francesca was James’ first wife and she met the singer when she was working with his band.

James – who formed the successful band with Lars Ulrich in 1981 – was performing around venues on Metallica’s Wherever We May tour, when Francesa came on board.

One thing led to another and they struck up a connection, with James going on to fawn over his wife in interviews and credit her for helping him through rough times, including with his anger management issues.

James – who battled with anger issues prior to meeting Francesca – once spoke about how she helped him through the ‘hardest period’ of his life, with his ex-wife once giving him the ultimatum that his children wouldn’t be staying with him unless he sorted himself out.

‘My wife has been the most amazing person in my life,’ James told the Marin Independent Journal in 2009.

‘She has ridden the big waves with me. We have gone through some extremely difficult things and come out stronger. She’s stuck with me through all the hell.

‘When I met her, I knew she was brought to me to help me get out of this hell hole. And she did.’

In another radio interview, James said his wife ‘walked through fire’ with him and called her ‘a good mentor’ for him.

‘She’s very balanced, very even-keeled – and it drives me nuts. You know, the opposites do attract,’ he said.

Reps for James Hetfield have been contacted for comment.
